Report: Yale professor sexually assaulted 5 students
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — An investigation has concluded that a Yale University psychiatry professor sexually assaulted five students at a research facility on the Caribbean island of St. Kitts and committed sexual misconduct against at least eight others.
The report by former Connecticut U.S. Attorney Deirdre Daly was released Tuesday. She investigated Dr. D. Eugene Redmond, who retired last year from the Yale School of Medicine as disciplinary proceedings were imminent.
Redmond denied the allegations. Messages seeking comment were left with Redmond and his lawyer Tuesday.
Daly concluded Redmond sexually assaulted two students in the early 1990s and three others between 2010 and 2017. She reported the assaults involved nonconsensual touching of male students.
The report says Yale officials failed to adequately respond to complaints against Redmond in 1994.
Yale President Peter Salovey says he’s sorry Redmond’s behavior wasn’t stopped.
